This course is designed to be interactive with didactic lectures given by leaders in the spine community. Participants will review and practice surgical principles and techniques in the treatment of complex spinal disorders. Expert lecturers will describe the state-of-the-art treatment for a variety of Pediatric and Adult Spinal Disorders. Interactive case presentations will allow learners to apply knowledge to improve decision making for complex spine pathology. 

TARGET AUDIENCE

Residents, fellows, allied health professionals and surgeons wanting to broaden their experience will have the opportunity to improve skills in evaluating, case planning, and performing techniques to address various pediatric and adult spine pathologies.

LIVE STREAM MEETING UPDATE

This course will be offered as a live interactive virtual conference.  Login instructions along with the digital syllabus will be shared with attendees a week before the meeting.  Included in your registration fee is access to the course recordings on demand (available within a week after the conference) for any sessions that you miss, available for up to 30 days post-course.

An attendee completing this course should improve skills and strategies to:

  • Interpret and apply current, best available evidence to assess sagittal alignment in the adult and pediatric deformity patient;
  • Evaluate and treat pain related to spinal disorders in a cost-effective and reliable manner based on recently published guidelines;
  • Evaluate and treat lumbar degenerative disease and deformity in a cost-effective manner based on an evidence-based approach and avoid case-to-morbidity risk;
  • Avoid perioperative complications by identifying risk factors that may predispose individuals to perioperative morbidity;
  • Determine modifiable risk factors and strategies for effective optimization;
  • Diagnose spinal instability related to spinal tumors and formulate surgical treatment plans to address neurological deficits, pain, and instability in spine oncology patients based on published guidelines;
